Alanis Morissette revealed how becoming the mother of three children transformer her life, and her music.


Canadian singer Alanis Morissette opened up about how becoming a mother to three children, son Ever, 9, daughter Onyx, 4, and baby boy Winter, 11 months, changed her music.

The singer/ songwriter who once revealed that she sang from a place of anger, is now a nurturing woman, who has mastered the essential parenting art of multitasking.

"Rolling Stone Magazine's" review of "Such Pretty Forks in the Road" highlights the always intimate nature of Morissette's music

25 years ago, Morissette's third album, "Jagged Little Pill" catapulted her to mega-stardom -- an album she admits was born out of her anger. She said:

"In the '90s, it was angry white female. I love anger. Not the destructive, acting out [kind], but anger (...) that can move things and set boundaries and fuel activism."

Morrissette, now 46, is now on the verge of releasing her 9th album, "Such Pretty Forks in the Road," which she confesses comes from a very different place -- and sung and written by very different women from her 21-year-old self.



Morissette confesses that whereas once she demanded perfect quiet and no distractions to practice her vocals, she now does it all while breastfeeding, feeding her children, letting the puppy out, and juggling all the tiny crises that are part of being a mother.


The new album, Morissette explains, is all about the changes she's gone through in her life: moving to Northern California, marrying hip hop artist Mario Treadway in 2010. The "You Ought To Know" singer was featured on the cover of "Health Magazine's" May 2020 issue, breastfeeding her son Winter.


"Rolling Stone Magazine's" review of "Such Pretty Forks in the Road" highlights the always intimate nature of Morissette's music -- a music that has evolved, and now depicts a more mature woman, dealing with the anxiety and vague depression that seems to permeate our society, but with her deep wounds healed by love and motherhood.


Morissette, now in her 10th year of marriage has confessed that the COVID-19 pandemic has been quite a challenge. Being thrown together with her husband 24/7 has caused natural stress, but that it has also prompted a deepening of their bond and an opportunity for growth.
